Sewing Circles.

The lovely Sandi was so kind as to offer me several suggestions about what pattern to sew with the material that I had featured a few blog posts ago. I followed her links and somehow found myself on someone elses blog and then another blog and a pattern site, then another, I got lost in a maze! But I did come up with an idea for the "wonky Circle Quilt". So I cut out some squares, put a new blade in the rotary cutter, watched a "how to sew curves without pins" video on Youtube and pretty soon I had all these blocks.

I had in the back of my head that sewing curves was really hard but these were so easy! I think the trick is lots of starch. After laying all these blocks out I figures I want to do four large circles in the middle and then these ones around the outside.

These curves were cut freehand. I am happy with the curves and happy with the design. Now off to sew 30 more small quarters and 16 large ones.....

Very pretty. I especially like the first layout. It made me think of waves upon the sand.
